Our core product MultiBaas allows both independent developers and enterprise companies to rapidly prototype and build blockchain applications.
To learn more about blockchain technology, Jeff and William went to the Consensys conference in New York in 2017 where they prototyped a decentralized warehouse management system for the Consensus 2017 hackathon.
They won the Consensys Academy Prize for their entry but realized something while building it: blockchain was still early and was missing the kinds of tools that modern developers use to efficiently build large scale applications.
To solve this problem, Curvegrid assembled a world-class team of blockchain engineers and set out to create MultiBaas, the missing platform that would make developing on the blockchain both efficient and approachable.

Blockchain will improve and replace almost any form of human interaction where trust and value are involved. Moreover, it will create new financial and social opportunities for everyone from single individuals to the largest nation states. Curvegrid is driving the world’s transition to decentralised technologies.
We believe in solving real customer problems with robust, practical engineering. We understand companies have a goal to achieve and that technology should support, not complicate that goal. Our team members come from around the world, and we work to support each other, learn new skills, and continually improve.
